First Friday October

handstands, hoods, and weird fictions

By Lisa Radon October 2, 2009


Tonight Eastside galleries open their October shows with receptions generally from 6-8, but at Worksound that will skew later. Anna Weber
Nationale (2730 E Burnside)
Anna Weber presents a new series of paintings and drawings "inspired by geometry, architecture, maps, textiles, sign painters, symmetry, balance, falling, and floating." Weber had a call out for photos of people doing handstands! Should be interesting.

Worksound (820 SE Alder)
While Micah Malone’s Sell Out is still up, Modou Dieng is also bringing in "an array of Installations involving Sculptures, Sound, Videos, and photographs by 3 Artists/Faculty at PNCA." Also Weird Fiction and Swahili perform.

Sword of Light
Fresh off his show at Gallery HOMELAND’s EAST/WEST BERLIN, Josh Arseneau
brings his provocative work back home. Images drawn from the news, typically tragic, hostile. Will be interested to hear how Arseneau’s work read differently in Berlin. The United States had 9/11, but West Germany had Baader Meinhof. And Berlin had, well, machine guns and a Wall.
